Cats are technically a liquid

Miss Priss isĀ  a happy cat. Totally relaxed, as you can see. Rob is home on leave(!!!!) and the cats are happy. I think if he had chosen a different career path, he would make a wonderful veterinarian.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Today started out way too early, when Jeff needed help getting a bat out of the kitchen. I drove him to work and we could see the moon in the very dark sky, and wow was it pretty!Nice to know it’s going to be sunny for at least a little while.

We have cleaning and choir practice up for the day, and hopefully, fingers crossed, a trip to the airport. Tomorrow the new fridge arrives!

I’m also going to try to add in a better picture of the Fawkes sock today, since it is so much brighter in the house.Thinking about knitting, I wonder if I am the only person who buys sock yarn and lets it sit for a bit while I wait for it to tell me what pattern it wants to be made in. I have some beautiful Jitterbug that has the name of Lagoon, that wants to be a wavy sort of sock. Not plain, and not a Jaywalker. I think the Fawkes turned out nicely, it has a sort of flame pattern, and a red, orange, and ashy colorway.

The Good, The Bad, and the Knitted

Today was a mix of the good and the not so good. On the not so good side, I had the dawning realization that having my freezer not freeze and my fridge freeze was a bad thing. I think I will have to cook up all the meat in the freezer tomorrow, so it won’t go bad. Also, Jeff came home feeling icky from Kodak(early), and called off TRU. I think he got the dreaded flu that’s been going around town.

The good side, however, was really good! The girls and I met a dear friend and her daughter for a late lunch(or dupper as we are calling it) at Chili’s. I always have so much fun when I am around Kae, and her daughter is just as witty and silly as the rest of us. Kae brought me some books of knitting patterns, including two Dale of Norway booklets. I can’t wait to start doing colorwork!
We also made a short trip to SA, where we found some more drinking glasses, and I got two books: The Joy of Signing, and Make Your Own Groceries.

I finished up the second Fawkes sock today, and have to get that in the mail. I will post a picture tomorrow before I send it off, it was my first pair of “fancy” socks, and I am pleased with how they turned out.

Seven Random Facts about Myself

I know that most of this won’t be a surprise to my kids, they know me very well.

1. When I was a kid, I wanted to have 14 children, because I thought you needed close to that to be able to have a station wagon. Plus I really loved little kids.

2. The first time I made muffins from scratch I was 10 years old. It was the same night Charlie Brown and The Great Pumpkin was on for the first time. I kept running into the living room to watch, and the muffins didn’t taste very good.

3. I almost joined the military when I finished high school. I was seriously thinking about the Navy or Air Force, though the Army recruiter was really trying to get me to join.

4. I learned to knit when I was 12, taught by Dorothy Brown in my 6th grade class.

5. I learned to sew when I was 13, taught by my Aunt Ann. I still have the patterns we used that summer. One of them made it onto the blog(now defunct) Threadbared.

6. I love Showtunes. I could listen to them day and night.

7. I used to have Elton John’s autograph…gotten at a Sears in Honolulu, where he was doing an album promotion. It was his second or third album, and he hadn’t hit it huge yet.
